Supern treatment, looks like an HDR. Well done.

14 May 2010 1:32pm

@MontereyJohn: Not an HDR. Actually there was minimal processing. (Yet, must say that I don't mind doing whatever processing is needed to get the results that I want.)

Diane Schuller from Hythe, Canada

oh my. Love the smooth lines in the foreground -- they give a sense of gentle movement; the framing; the person walking through the rocks further out; and that breaking sky. Really well done.

@Diane Schuller: Thanks, Diane. This is one of my all time favorites.

Macrobaby from Vancouver, Canada

This one is spectacular! What a place! Very nicely captured and framed. The tones are so nice and to even have someone walking out us the perspective of how big those rocks are. Really really nice.

Barbara from Florida, United States

Spectacular, Jack! I get a sense of calm yet love the drama from the clouds, sea and rocks. It stirs the soul. Like I've said before, it is images like this of yours that has makes me need to experience the Oregon coast. I've been to Washington and California's coast but not Oregon. The clarity is exceptional, and a nice addition to having a person in the scene.
I will return to see it again, that is how beautiful this image is.

16 May 2010 2:20am

Barbara Kile from Ft. Worth, United States

I love the foreground water/sand movement which leads me to the reflective water and then to the dramatic sky. Your person brings a sense of scale and you allowed nice space between each of the rocks. Well done!

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

Excellent leading lines in the sand and rivulets of water! I spent much time here looking for a composition as beautiful as this- but as you undoubtedly know- it's not as easy as you make it look! This is a gorgeous series!

18 May 2010 7:57pm

@Tracy: This may well have been the best two days of shooting of my entire life. It was a mind-boggling experience.
